The company was co-founded by Lord Carnarvon, owner of Highclere Castle and the godson to Her Majesty the Queen. The London dry gin brand debuted the Queen’s Jubilee Cocktail earlier this year in honor of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

“The gin and Dubonnet was a favorite of Her Majesty the Queen. As an homage to her Platinum Jubilee Celebration we have named this our cocktail of the year. And now with the recent passing of the Queen, as the world mourns, we toast her in spirit and the light she shone around the world,” Adam von Gootkin, co-Founder and CEO of Highclere Castle Spirits, told Fox News Digital.

“Highclere Castle Gin shines exceptionally well in this cocktail due to its citrus forward nature. As a slight twist, we like to top the cocktail with a splash of champagne – what I think of as the crown on the cocktail,” he continued, adding that occasionally Dubonnet is hard to find, so their mixologist sometimes uses Lillet Rose in this cocktail.

Separately, Lord Carnarvon spoke out about his memories of Queen Elizabeth II.

“I have happy memories as a boy, of Her Majesty coming to stay with my father at Highclere and visiting the mares and foals at her stud by Kingsclere and on the estate. I count myself very lucky to have known this very special lady quite well since my youth,” Lord Carnarvon said in a media statement.

“And her passing defines the end of an era which has been subject to so much change. Despite all of the changes in attitudes and technology, the Queen never changed in her view of duty, and Christian faith. I salute her life, but we must also look forward, so long live the King!”
